GFS in New Orleans: Santa Fe Chic



Can you believe I thrifted this skirt? It was actually a two piece and I got it for the top. I was really digging the ethnic print of it all. Then for some reason unknown to me, I decided to try on the skirt and slide it up!


VOILA! It's a dress! A dress I love the most!  The print has a Santa Fe vibe to it, don't you think?


I threw on my wedges and a belt and walked the streets of New Orleans. New Orleans is a blogger's dream for beautiful backdrops for pictures. I couldn't get enough of the brick buildings and random spottings of grafitti.

Thanks to The Minister of Style's suggestion we made it to Mother's Cafe where the line was crazy long! I felt just like a tourist taking pics of people while they were working!

I'm kinda jealous that I'm not enjoying the bayou as well (sad face)..but oh well! You look like you're having such a great time. The weather looks great (just like here in Florida). I love the print of that skirt, and I'm a HUGE fan of your SAM wedges!!

I heart this skirt/dress in big BIG ways. Also, I would cut your feet off for those shoes. And I hate both blood and feet, so that says a lot :)

If the shoe fits, it's probably too expensive. A New York girls secret to being a shoe-a-holic while still being able to live :)
